I washed the engine bay of my 01, I though I was being carful. Now it runs crappy. It runs like it's missing very low power. What could I possibly done, and how can I fix it?

Mine ran a little crappy right after but I think it was cause i got the filter wet, it should fix itself once it dries

As long as you keep water out of the filter and don't use high pressure spray, it shouldn't hurt anything. I'm guessing you used some high pressure and got water through a weatherpack connector somewhere. Pop the hood outside in the sun for a little while and see if some evaporation helps. If not, you might have some hunting to do. Check codes while you're at it.

Ditto, although I do avoid the alternator and A.I.R. pump.

just make shure you get the coil packs dry. maybe pull them and re apply dielectric grease on the plugs. had to do that with one of the mustangs.
